Celebrate Cincinnati’s German past, debauched and medieval at this
year’s festival of deliciously dark goat-beer. It all starts off with
a meandering parade, replete with beer-bellied monks (who historically
made nutritious bocks for fasting), goats and floats. It’s always a
bunch of fun and there’s usually a bit of rain, so be sure to stand on
the side of Main Street and wish the waning winter a buzzed farewell.  

Revelers will make their way to the real meat of the event, where
beer, food and live music will commence. Yes, Friday is the day of
tradition. However, the rest of the weekend is full of tours, history
and day drinking, so don’t destroy yourself in one night! The parade
starts at 5 p.m. at Arnold’s, 210 E. Eighth St. The festival afterward
occurs at the Christian Moerlein Event Hall, 1619 Moore St.,
Over-the-Rhine. Friday through Sunday. All events and venues can be
found at .
